Bill Gessner | 1st Battalion, 9th Marines (Attached) - Navy

8:45   |   The fighting was hard. One company was ambushed and the other two were having a hard time breaking through to support it. Corpsman Bill Gessner was in the thick of the fight and as he was treating a wounded Marine, a hand grenade came into the hole and wounded him and killed two others.
